```Erasmo--this problem seems constantly to have a "new" wrinkle.  Try this:

clear
input firm year y x
1 1980 20 23
1 1981 22 34
1 1982 20 19
1 1984 22 34
1 1985 20 19
1 1986 28 34
1 1987 30 19
1 2004 33 48
1 2005 30 45
1 2006 35 50
2 1980 15 23
2 1981 55 34
2 1982 29 19
2 1983 15 23
2 1984 55 34
2 1985 29 19
2 1986 28 34
2 1987 30 19
end
su year, meanonly
